l'Cie all seem to carry a crystal within them. From a gameplay point of view, we see it at the very root of a character's crystarium and with role branches growing as you infuse it with Crystogen points.
At the end of XIII we see a bunch of Adamantoise and other fauna turn into crystal dust to create the pillar for Cocoon. Does this mean the same happens when you battle enemies and they dissolve after battle, turning into Crystogen and allowing you to grow? l'Cie get stronger by absorbing things they kill? --- TheTrueBZ: Maybe your PS2 committed suicide after witnessing your obnoxiousness.
I thought everyone has a crystal within whether they're normal human beings or l'cie.Being l'cie just acts as a jumpstart to being powerful. --- Because I could not stop for death,it kindly stopped for me. Currently playing Sleeping Dogs.Sleeping Dogs is a true gem and more people should play it :)
